Tonight's episode of "Total Blackout," the final episode in the second season, is entitled 'Celebrity Blackout.'  We assume that they mean this in the same way that "Celebrity Apprentice" means 'celebrity.'  That is to say, you'll know the names of the people appearing in the episode, but they might not be what you would traditionally think of as a celebrity.  Either that or the fears involved in tonight's episode are celebrities.  Imagine just hearing a Kardashian's voice while your in a completely dark room.  Terrifying.

    This is less the start of a full new season of "Total Blackout" than it is the return with the second half of the series' second season.  For those who don't recall, "Total Blackout" might best be described as "Fear Factor" but in the dark.  It is this whole being in the dark thing that gives "Total Blackout" it's name.  People have to do disgusting/scary things in the dark.  As for Jaleel White, we're not entirely sure where his name came from but we do know that he is the host of the series and, consequently, isn't required to experience the dark in quite the same way as the contestants.

    Is it a little too soon for "Total Blackout" to be doing an all-star episode?  After all, this is just the end of season two, a 10 episode season which follows the first season's eight episodes?  Nah.  You know you want to see your favorite "Total Blackout" contestants totally blacking out again just to prove who does it the best.  And, for the uninitiated, no, this isn't a show about binge drinking, it's about facing your fears in the dark.  So, maybe, if binge drinking is a fear it could be on the show, but we just don't see them going in that direction.

    Hosted by Jaleel White (yes, yes, that Jaleel White, the one from "Family Matters"), this reality series has people do things in the dark.  No, not those sorts of things in the dark, more the scary kind of things in the dark (wow, really, you're going to go there?  don't give us that 'well, I've done those sorts of scary things in dark' no one wants to know about your late night, last call, escapades).  There are no blindfolds here (keep it to yourself), just challenges and the overcoming of fears.  Plus Jaleel White, he's also here.

    We are quite sure that you remember when we told you to watch this show during the series premiere back at the end of April.  We are also quite sure that you didn't watch.  Well, let us then suggest to you that maybe you ought to consider tuning in tonight for the season finale.  The point of this series is to scare people in the dark and have Jaleel White tell us all about what's going on.  We can't imagine a better notion for a "Fear Factor"-style show that isn't "Fear Factor."
